- Reclaiming Tradition
- WitchCamp Council
In our fourth year of camp we continue with our five year theme of working with the Elements of Magic: Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit. This year we invoke Water.
With reverence to the sacred waters around us and within us, we begin the work with the waters to heal ourselves, our communities and the waters of this land.
We stand in solidarity with indigenous water protectors and echo the call, “Water is Life”. We are learning to be allies and accomplices in this sacred healing work.
Ourselves as the Chalice: We are the vessels holding the water of life. Our tears, blood, sweat, and fluids of our sex are holy. Our bodies mimic the body of the earth. our veins like rivers. water is blood. How do we hold this with accountability?
Ourselves as the Ices: We store emotions and dreams in our bodies. These crystal visions stay safe and frozen until the time is right to share. Slowing down in temperature, in thought, in process. Allowing a deep freeze. Anticipating the thaw. How do we know when to rest, when to slow down? How do we step carefully on the ice?
Ourselves as Waters of the Worlds: coming together to bless the land. We make offerings of ourselves to protect water and bless the descendants. All water is connected, all human bodies are connected. How do we connect all bodies of water and all bodies in times of great need?
Will you join us?
Location: Long Lake Outdoor Education Centre in the Boreal Forest, about 150kms north of Edmonton. Cabins are wood heated with bunk beds.
Our camp is located on Treaty 6 land. Treaty 6 extends across much of Central Alberta, traditional land of Cree, Assiniboine, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Chipewyan and others. Treaties were made with the intent that land would be shared. As we travel, celebrate, gain nourishment, and live on this land we are treaty members and uphold our responsibility to the land and its original inhabitants.
